We are very excited to start 2016-2017 here at Gloucester Township Public Schools. We have amazing students, teachers, and families. We are here for every student to be successful and reach their full potential.
I am a graduate of Rowan University, with a BA in History, specializing in International Studies and Africa/African Diaspora Studies. My favorite areas of research include Ancient Egypt, Archaeology, Geography, the cultures of sub-Saharan Africa, Native Americans, and the history of Buddhism and Taoism.
Also at Rowan, I pursued graduate work and earned a MST degree in Secondary Education, as well as Certificates of Advanced Graduate Study in the School Supervisor and Principal Preparation programs.
I previously spent 13 years as an English Language Arts, Social Studies, and Gifted and Talented teacher at West Deptford Middle School. While there, I was able to lead staff in numerous progressive change projects including Writer’s/Reader’s Workshop, a 1-1 Laptop Initiative, curriculum writing and evaluation, Positive Behavior Supports in Schools program, and the EE4NJ Teacher Evaluation System Pilot.
When not working, I enjoy reading, tennis, golf, basketball and fishing.
I look forward to supporting the students and staff of Gloucester Township. It is going to be an amazing school year!
